St. Patrick's Day Bike Ride, Birdeye

Kyle and Cecelia's rolled off their car in front
of Crowley's Ridge Country Club and when it was pronounced
rideable at my house we all took off and then its chain fell off
and the Killough's only made it 4 miles roundtrip.  But at least
the post ride partee was fun, we had a great time catching up!

The BBC got a shout out in Cherry Valley coming in on the
home stretch by a driver that yelled, "Go Green!" haha!
Neall, Jackie, Becca, Jimmy, Beth, me Beth, Cecelia, Kyle and Stan

Cecelia told me that these socks were given to Kyle by his
parents who always get him a pair of socks when they travel,
alrighty then, I'd say these are vintage...

What fun it was to have such a great crowd yesterday for our scheduled 32 miler that ended up being changed due to wind gusts.  Martino decided going south to the Vanndale loop would be easier on us than battling the Weona flats.  So that's what we did and I can give Beth Bradshaw a standing ovation for speeding past me on the Vanndale Hill therefore I give her the polka dot jersey for getting up Kara and I's infamous foul language hill.  I was just behind her but she made it first for the females and I'm proud that she took my advice to stand up on the hills in a lower gear.

Now to the Killoughs and Jacksons who both suffered chain problems....The Killough's had all kinds of troubles with their tandem's chain and so forth.  Neall lost his chain at Vanndale and cut out the Million Dollar loop and went straight on to Birdeye.  We caught up with them at Cherry Valley on the last leg of the trip.

The post partee was a ton of fun and I'm so thankful that everyone drank our beer.  We've been sitting on a lot of use it or lose it beer from the club and I'm glad most of it's gone, thank goodness!  Cecelia made the most divine  corned beef terrine, Beth Bradshaw and I both made the same spinach dip, and Becca, Beth and Kara's dips were wiped out!  Thankfully the girls got me some extra chips so we were chip plentiful in the end.  Thanks again to everyone who rolled out and I'm looking forward to the next bike ride!

I hope Becca and Neall will host soon so I can blog about their renovated kitchen and house! -Keeli
